Prima facie, police suspect that the second woman, her son and the child were murdered by another woman, who later committed suicide by hanging herself from the fan. However, the actual reason behind the incident is yet to be ascertained. The police have launched an investigation into the matter.
Earlier in July, the discovery of 11 bodies at the Bhatia home in North Delhi's Burari had almost all newsrooms in the country in a tizzy. While 10 of the family members were found hanging from an iron rod of a ceiling with their eyes covered, mouths gagged and hands tied behind their back, an aged woman named Narayani Devi was lying on the floor of the house.
Days after the mysterious death of Bhatia family left the nation shocked, police claimed to have solved the puzzling case, saying the mass suicide was an act of gratitude to God. The family committed suicide in a thankful gesture to god after their several pending works were completed.
